Now that’s what I call ‘Louisiana representin’! Former Louisiana Governor and Country Music Hall of Fame member Jimmie Davis recorded one of the most iconic songs in history with ‘You Are My Sunshine’, and now it is one of the newest inductees into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

From USA TODAY:Librarian James H. Billington announced the registry’s 25 additions,

which represent historic radio broadcasts, dance crazes, Southern gospel and punk rock. The list, which brings the total number of registry recordings to 375, includes the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, a 1931 Will Rogers broadcast and pianist Van Cliburn’s award-winning 1958 performance of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, as well as recordings from Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin’s Big Brother and the Holding Company, Chubby Checker and The Ramones. The newly enshrined recordings stretch from 1918 to 1980.

Congrats to the family of Governor Davis – Louisiana is so proud!!
